This year marks the 15th anniversary of UN Security Council resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. In 2000, the Security Council formally acknowledged the changing nature of warfare, in which civilians are increasingly targeted, and women continue to be excluded from participation in peace processes. UNSCR 1325 addresses not only the consequences of war on women, but also the crucial role women should and do play in conflict management, conflict resolution, and sustainable peace.  

Last year, the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and almost 20 government ministries and agencies launched Afghanistan’s first ever Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security. The plan was drafted with collaboration of civil society, including regional consultations to gather Afghan women’s views on peacebuilding and security. Unfortunately , the plan is still not made publicly available. Last month, the Norwegian Government launched a new Action Plan on Women, Peace and Security. The Norwegian Action Plan is not specific on how Norway plans to assist the Afghan government on this topic, although Afghanistan is a priority country for Norway.   

How will the Norwegian and Afghan plans contribute to women’s participation in decision making in Afghanistan? Will the plans protect women and girls from violence? How can the dialogue and cooperation between the government and civil society increase, and how will the new Afghan plan engage both women and men in supporting a peaceful transition in Afghanistan? What can Norway do to contribute to the implementation of Resolution 1325 in Afghanistan?
